More Patches, and Lee the Pine Marten

First thing: Yesterday, the second batch of the Nordguard Patches came in! If you missed out on the first ones, now is your chance! :]

They are 3.5 inches in diameter, 50% embroidery with a merrowed edge. Patches are $6.50 per, plus shipping!
More information, photos and how to order are up on:

Second, here are a few of my initial character studies for Lee, the pine marten. He's a character in Across Thin Ice, though he's only in this first book for a few pages.

And finally, this is a quick sanity painting I did late last night. Working on the comic day in and day out can get a little tedious after a while, so now and then I need to paint something else. It's based off a photo I took at last years Iditarod.

Across Thin Ice: Pg 30

Here is page 30 from Across Thin Ice. In the wake of adding and shifting a couple of pages, all of the older pages and their corresponding page numbers are a little askew, and essentially meaningless! ;]

You can check out the recorded sessions of painting this (and several other) pages from Across Thin Ice over on my LiveStream channel. (And speaking of LiveStream, I'm painting on there right now!)

Some progress photos of page 30:

And something from Page 31:

On another note, I put in an order for more of the Nordguard patches. So if you missed out on the first batch, no worries! I suspect I'll have them up for sale again later this month. :]
